WHEN BUSINESS BECOMES A PLEASURE TFE Hotels has unveiled a stellar line-up of MICE hotels for the year ahead.

A

s COVID-19 took hold and much of the world paused over the past 12 months, TFE Hotels hasn’t rested on its laurels. Instead, the Australian-based international hotel company has forged ahead with an ambitious pipeline including new-build hotels in Victoria, New South Wales, Canberra, Perth and New Zealand, alongside a smorgasbord of new restaurants including The Belvedere in Hobart, The Storehouse Subiaco in Perth, Kingi in Auckland, and a creative partnership with Maybe Sammy and Maurice Terzini in Sydney. When it comes to conferencing with TFE Hotels, here are our top new picks for 2021:

Adina Apartment Hotel Melbourne Southbank Lauded for its green-build credentials, floor-toceiling windows and architectural design, the

newly opened Adina Apartment Hotel Melbourne Southbank is turning heads as an alternative to staying in the bustling CBD. It offers light-filled meeting rooms – perfect for hybrid events – and spacious one- and two-bedroom suites (complete with kitchens and laundries) that offer views over the Yarra River and Southbank. What we love: This 220-room hotel not only has onsite parking but is super close to the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre (MCEC).

A by Adina Canberra Opened in January 2021, the 132-room A by Adina Canberra, and centrepiece of the aptly named Constitution Place, raises the flag on an exciting new premium brand by TFE Hotels. Guaranteed to win the public vote on comfort, accessibility and style, the Bates Smart-designed hotel sets a remarkable precedent in providing a ‘hotel living’ experience on the doorstep of Canberra’s famed Parliamentary Triangle, Lake Burley Griffin, the National Convention Centre and a buzzing line-up of cultural landmarks. What we love: Whether travelling for business or leisure, this is Adina, but not as you know it. Expect an elevated and exclusive experience from the moment you arrive.
